I think the ‘sew’ in the theme was enough to lead me straight to finding CLOTH and THREAD on the grids. A couple more seconds into the game and I found PATCH in the bottom left corner. In the bottom right, I found STITCH and right above it ran NEEDLE.

Towards the top left, there was SEAM running vertically. Solving these couple of words gave me TAILORING as the Spangram for the day. The last couple of grids were home to THIMBLE, and that concluded today’s round.

No hints used, but for how long can we keep this up? Let’s see. What about you? Did you have to use any hints or was the game easy enough for you too? Let me know in the comments down below!
